? >> in some cases, yes, because dogs, animals are so innocent they cannot protect themselves from us, the humans just like children. and those are our victims that absolutely have no recourse. and i think that's why people are so touched and so outraged when animals are taken advantage of like this. but, look, you can't keep him in forever. he's out. he did his time. i say get on with it and quit giving him any attention. >> would you go to a philadelphia eagles football game and watch him? >> no. >> all right. >> i would not pay for a ticket that would support michael vick. what are they going to do with mcnabb? he's all scrubbed in sunshine. you have vick over the corner, a convicted felon that made dogs fight to the death. now, that's certainly two ends of the spectrum for the philly eagles. >> nancy's answering your questions. they're coming up.
